    Laminate Flooring

    Laminate flooring benefits your wallet better than any other flooring option on the market. It is less than half the price of hardwood and less expensive than carpet. It will also save you money in the long run because you won’t need to replace it for years. Unlike hardwood, marble or carpet, laminate flooring does not fade in the sunlight and is resistant to stains, impacts and scratches. You won’t need any wax or polish. It will just require a dust or vacuum, followed by a wipe over with a damp cloth or mop. It is allergy friendly because it’s quick to clean and doesn’t absorb dust like carpet. It is also a very sanitary product due to its airtight locking system and plastic exterior, creating a shield against moisture that wants to get in. It does not contract or expand like real hardwood does and if moisture does get in, or permanent damage is caused to the surface or core-board, laminate flooring is easily replaced.

    Ceramic, Glass Tile & Natural Stone

    Ceramic tile

    Ceramic tile is made from clay which is baked at very high temperatures, resulting in an attractive and very hard surface. Ceramic tile is a varied material, some types glazed with a layer of liquid glass, others left untreated for a more natural, rustic appeal. It is worthwhile learning about the right kind of ceramic tile to ensure that the type you choose is the one that is most appropriate for your installation. Overall, ceramic tile is very low maintenance, particularly in terms of keeping the surface clean. Ceramic tile retains virtually no dirt and can be kept clean with water and a damp cloth or mop. Ceramic tile is also naturally fire resistant and can actually help to maintain a structure in the event of a fire, making it popular choice of flooring material by the safety conscious.

    Glass tile

    Glass tiles have become wildly popular in recent years because of the latest technological breakthroughs in cutting and installation. Not only are glass tiles resistant to water, they are fabulous because of their potential to impart intense color and reflect light. In other words, glass allows you to harness the beauty of color and light in ways other products simply can’t; and it’s the ideal material for wet or constantly submerged areas. The most popular place to see glass tiles are in a kitchen backsplash, bathroom accents, showers, and even flooring. The Interior Design Group, Inc. takes glass tile mosaics to new heights with radiant colors and expert finishing. We offer varied patterns ranging from modern graphics to soft florals. Whatever your style, we can match a beautiful glass mosaic to your project.

    Natural Stone

    Natural Stones are quarried out of mountains or underground from all over the world and then cut into blocks. The various sized stone blocks are then transported to the cutting and finishing plants where the stones are cut into various sizes and shapes and then the face is finished into a polished, honed, flamed, brushed, hammered, etc. based on the customer’s specifications. One beautiful characteristic of natural stone is that there are no two pieces of natural stone alike. Some stones may have extreme variation in color and veining from tile to tile or slab to slab. This characteristic is common in many types of stone, and is part of the inherent beauty of using a natural product in your home or project.

    Carpet Flooring Benefits

    Provides warmth and comfort

    Carpet provides actual thermal resistance, or R-value. In colder climates or seasons, it retains warm air longer, an energy conservation benefit. Carpet also provides a comfortable place to sit, play or work and gives a room an overall warmer feeling.

    Adds beauty and style

    You can choose from many thousands of carpet styles and colors. That means your ultimate choice will reflect how you want to personalize your living space. Carpet can be a neutral foundation, or it can be a focal point with vibrant colors and stronger bolder patterns and textures.

    Softens slips and falls

    Carpet is ideal for cushioning our footsteps, reducing slips and falls and minimizing injuries when falls do occur. Carpet provides safety protection for the whole family, but especially for toddlers and older individuals.

    Reduces noise

    Big screen TVs, speaker phones, computers and modern sound systems make our homes noisy places. Carpet helps absorb these sounds. Adding a cushion pad beneath your carpet reduces noise even further. Carpet also works as a sound barrier between floors by helping to block sound transmission to rooms below. And carpet on stairs helps mask the sound of constant foot traffic.

    Wears well

    Carpet will maintain its life and beauty for many years when properly cleaned and maintained. Learn to keep your carpet looking great over time by following these simple steps:

  • Preventative Maintenance — Protect your investment before problems occur.
  • Vacuuming — Keep carpet clean through regular vacuuming, the single most effective way to keep carpets clean.
  • Professional Cleaning — Have carpets cleaned professionally, a periodic must.
  • Spot and Stain Removal — Remember to use Approved products.
  • Carpet tiles

    Carpet Tiles should be an option you consider when the time comes to design a new floor, Commercial or Residential space. Carpet tiles offer all the modern advantages of standard carpet with unique designs. For more than 50 years tiles have been used in designing floors for both the home and workplace. Other common names for carpet tiles include module flooring or carpeting in a box. Even though they've been around for more than 50 years they are more popular in recent times due to their many advantages and lack of disadvantages.
